Context, Structures and Relationships

  • Alton J. De Long


The theme of this book is the complementary relationship between privacy and communality. Entities which are complementary, like the two sides of a coin, are merely different manifestations of the same thing: together they constitute an essential unity. To speak of privacy and communality as complements, however, involves more sophistication than simply acknowledging that both are important for the individual or the group. Complements are not opposites, although too often they are treated that way. Complements are mutual contributors to an underlying cause, or to an overall picture, much like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle each of which uniquely contributes to the unitary integrity of the puzzle.
